Hot new trends – Capes


Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds dimension to your gown, but it feels modern. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for your ceremony, then whisk it away to reveal a different look for your reception.

The bridal cape trend has reached a near-deafening pitch ever since Tommy Hilfiger’s daughter Ally wore a sheer cape to her recent wedding. Hilfiger’s hooded lace cape (designed by her dad, naturally) was floor-length and took the place of a veil. But if you’d rather just dip a toe into the trend for your big day, there are plenty of delicate, beautiful capes on the market to help you complete your dream wedding look.
